Nitrox is available on board, and diving gear rental is available once booked and reserved in advance. The dive guides are professional and well-trained to guide divers all day long.

Itinerary

 Sudan is well-known to have a rich diversity of marine life. It offers untouched coral reefs and vast numbers of schooling fish, moray eels and sea turtles. There are large pelagic species such as reef sharks, mantas and hammerheads. May to October is the rainy season, while November to June is the best time to visit and to have better visibility.

The Tiran Islands is a scuba divers dream that links the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba. The Marine Reserve and Ras Mohammed National Park is a magnificent place to enjoy the natural beauty underwater. There are some sites with fast currents and steep walls. Both day and night dives are great to experience as different marine life comes out once the sun goes down.
